Coach of the Year

Anderson is in his fourth year at Canyons.

Fresh starts
Former Canyon soccer players Courtney Belshiem and Hart graduate Casey Rubin have been significant factors in Santa Barbara City College's 5-0-4 start this season.

Rubin and Belshiem, both freshmen who start for the lady Vaqueros soccer team, play midfielders.

In SBCC's tie against Taft on Friday, Belsheim came the closest to scoring in the second half when her 30-yard shot bounced off the crossbar.

SBCC is currently ranked No. 6 in the country.
